The Writing from Life class serves two distinct groups of students -- those planning to earn credit through Prior Learning from Experience, and those who want to build their skills in creative and effective writing.

Prior Learning from Experience Prerequisite:  Students will have the chance to kick-start or accelerate, a college career by documenting professional and/or community-based experience. With significant support, they will learn to write essays that show the "college equivalent learning" they have gained through professional and/or community-based work. Students headed toward Prior Learning from Experience will receive significant faculty support, both one-on-one, and in class. For more information on this section, contact Nancy A. Parkes at  parkesn@evergreen.edu .You will also find further information, including a video, at http://www.evergreen.edu/ple .

Creative and Effective Writing: These students will concentrate on autobiography, essays, and writing of choice. They will participate with future Prior Learning from Experience students in reading and seminars on texts and essays, as well as writing workshops. Students in this section should have basic college-level writing experience and be capable of working on a highly independent and small group basis. Creative and Effective Writing students will choose their own topics and writing forms for writing assignments, and will also engage in assigned writing exercises. Critique group will be an invaluable part of the course experience.

Please sign up under the appropriate section and course number for either PLE or Creative and Effective Writing, under the umbrella of Writing from Life.
